April 30, 2014 • Cee • Monthly Recap

Well, April was basically my “hiatus” month. I really hadn’t intended it. I thought I would be back a week after the “semi-hiatus,” but nope. Certain circumstances prevented me from having regular access to internet. I honestly was not productive on my time away from it.

WHAT I DID IN APRIL

  • Moved house! No longer in an apartment, but in a fabulous duplex. :D So from mid-April, I was quite busy moving and unpacking and adjusting to my new surroundings.
  • Had a major reading and blogging slump. Courtesy of Sebastian Stan and Charlotte at Gypsy Reviews + Chiara at Delicate Eternity.
  • Watched a lot of Sebastian Stan’s work (mainly Political Animal)
  • Went to a big book sale!
  • Went to Rachel Hawkins’s (one of my absolute favorite authors) book event
  • Finally got my new cover feature name!
  • Went slowly crazy from the lack of internet.

Y’know, the usual. ;D

I got all these books at the big book sale! I was glad that I didn’t have as much as last time because that meant I didn’t have to lug it on the bus and up a hill. :D

ON THE BLOG

Not a lot happened this month because y’know, hiatus and all. I didn’t prep for it since I had no idea I’d be gone for half a month. :P

  • I wrote a letter to myself because I went into major Sebastian Stan obsession mode, which Charlotte and Chiara can vouch for. It was horrible, but wonderful.
  • If you missed my font posts, check them out here:

  • Also, I talked about —

— My Camp NaNoWriMo project, which was a murder mystery and had a ghost haunting.

— my semi-hiatus because I was moving house, which turned into an actual lonnnnngg hiatus!

May will be a glorious month because of these reasons:

  • MY BIRTHDAY! First and foremost! Major party timeeeeeeeee!
  • INTERNET. I HAVE GLORIOUS INTERNET.

  4. I’m curious about that Sebastian dude. I need to check that out! I was kind of in a semi-hiatus too because of school and just problems in life but hopefully I’ll get back into my reading grind soon. I’ve been debating whether I want to read The Heist Society. I heard that it’s a really good and fun read. That’s so cool how you got to meet Rachel Hawkins! I haven’t read Rebel Belle yet but omg I really want to own it. That cover though! So gorgeous!

    Yay I’m not the only one to take unplanned blogging and reading hiatuses! It’s not that I don’t want to blog or read, it’s just that I have a hard time putting away other things to do it. Ah, time management and motivation. where can they be found? ;)
